Yoga for Vitality!
At Vitality Yoga, yoga is about igniting the vitality inherent in each of us. Yoga, meaning “to yoke” or “unite,” often begins as a physical practice, helping us to build strong, supple bodies and minds. Then, with regular practice, we become balanced both on and off the mat, joining mind, body, and spirit. The benefits of yoga eventually spill out into other areas of our lives. Yoga opens us to abundance while allowing us to be the healthiest, happiest versions of ourselves.
Your yoga instructor
For me, yoga is a lifestyle: scientific in theory, artistic in application, and always accessible and fun. Nothing excites me more than living vibrantly while loving whole-heartedly and sharing my vitality with others in a way that inspires them to become Tipsy on Life!

“I have worked with Andrea and found her class to be challenging and stimulating. Andrea is very knowledgeable and caring with her students. She is readily available if her students need corrections or modifications. Both my husband and I have left her class feeling more focused and relaxed. I recommend Vitality Yoga to anyone who wishes to enhance their well-being.”

Wonderful Yoga Teacher
“My daughter found Andrea for me and signed me up for private lessons with her as I had never done yoga and was unsure about doing a group class. I immediately felt very comfortable with Andrea as she was genuine and has such a warm personality. She is extremely knowledgeable and is a wonderful teacher. I would recommend her for private or group classes! I am grateful that I had the opportunity to work with her.”
– Ann D.
“Andrea is truly a compassionate and powerful healer. My Reiki treatment with her was very relaxing and I could also actually feel the energy entering my body, especially around my head. The next day I felt lighter, happier and more energized.”

Candy for the Soul
“Soul Candy was quite literally candy for my soul. I began the retreat searching for comfort and clarity within the cooler transition that autumn was bringing. I don’t think I could have landed in a more supportive place than Soul Candy to find these things. Andrea teaches from a place of deep knowledge and compassion, and her reverence for what is happening in the present (whether it’s a general feeling of group fatigue, the chilliness of the day, lots of energy, etc…) comes through in her practices. Soul Candy was focused on the elements, and every day varied depending on the qualities of fire, wood, earth, metal and water. Every person was challenged differently depending on the day and element. Regardless of the day, Andrea was a stable and playful presence, always helping to guide us toward our own balance during practice and our daily hikes. The meals, expertly prepared by her loving husband, Jeremy, and some days catered by her good friend and restaurant owner James, were delicious, filling and thoughtfully paired with the element of the day. We enjoyed our meals as a group in Andrea and Jeremy’s home, laughing and learning from one another. I would recommend Soul Candy to anyone, regardless of yoga experience, because Andrea offers an invaluable opportunity to learn about your body and mind, all while enjoying the good things in life!”

Amazing Yoga Retreat!
“I want to thank VitalityYoga for this great retreat! It was so awesome! Everyone welcomed me with open arms, making me feel like if I was at home like if they were part of my family! I love the way the retreat was organized, giving a complete and balanced retreat! I love how in the mornings we had the yoga practice, then we ate and after that our walk and connection with nature. We would come back and have our rest time, afternoon yoga, and then dinner. All our meals were vegetarian and complete. I feel like it was a great and balanced/complete retreat. Giving me all I need to have a happier and more balanced life. Also working with the elements was great. I love it. All in all, I am very grateful and happy to have attended this amazing retreat. It was very complete. I can’t explain more! Words are shorter than what my experience was by going to this retreat! Giving me the opportunity to learn and explore new things to get me out of my comfort zone was amazing! Totally recommend it to anyone! Definitely won’t be my last one! THANK YOU SO MUCH VITALITYYOGA!” 🙏🏽❤️

Loving Space at Soul Candy Retreat
“This was my first time attending a yoga retreat. I was a little skeptical about it since I have no yoga experience but something was calling me to do it. I emailed Andrea with my honest concerns and she promptly replied, her response calmed my doubts and helped me feel I had made a good choice on signing up to this retreat. The welcoming I felt was truly pure and loving ever since we arrived. I’ve never felt so welcomed to a new place where nobody knew me. The yoga experience was amazing, perfectly guided and very mindful, almost like it was personally designed for my needs. Food was great (props to the cook), everything I did during the retreat was so unique that I can’t wait for the next one. To top it off I had an amazing Reiki session with Andrea that gave me exactly what I needed for our long drive back home. Forgot to mention that I met such a great group people 💗. Namaste 🙏🏼”
Private Yoga Instruction
“I have been taking private yoga lessons from Andrea for a while now. She works within my capabilities and has a positive attitude. In the time I have been taking yoga with her my health and self-confidence has improved.”
-Kyle R., Martial Artist
Patience & Knowledge
“I have been going to Andrea’s Wednesday afternoon yoga class for several months, and can’t believe how strong I am getting/feeling. As someone who is 40+lbs overweight, it can be very difficult to get started on an exercise regimen that you can stick with. Even once a week has been enough to build my strength and flexibility to the point where I now feel I can take on more cardiovascular-type workouts. It’s easy to go to Andrea’s class because she is patient, knowledgeable, serene, sweet, and knows the human body. She can create modifications for every level for everyone in the class. I love working with Andrea!”
Yoga for Physical Challenges
“Andrea Stuart is a wonderful yoga teacher and I just love her class. Her instructions are clear and consistent. She is incredibly kind and always positive. You’ll learn proper form and grow to love her approach as she guides you towards a stronger and more confident practice. She really emphasizes the correctness of the poses. Her style is great for beginners as well as veterans of yoga. She is completely accommodating to my physical challenges, which has heightened my passion for yoga. I am so excited to be a part of her class and I just know others will feel the same. Thank you, Andrea, for helping me achieves my health goals.”
